Solicitors pitted their sailing skills against architects, barristers and MPs in the annual outing of the Law Society Yacht Club. The regatta featured races between classic 26-foot Mermaid-class keelboats operated by the Sea View Yacht Club on the Isle of Wight.

The results were:

First place – House of Commons

Second – The Bar

Third – Law Society, and

Fourth – Architects.

Any conclusion about performance being in proportion to the professions’ respective abilities to generate their own wind would be entirely unworthy.
